Katy Perry calls boyfriend Orlando Bloom an 'exhibitionist' during an interview
Katy Perry called her boyfriend Orlando Bloom an "exhibitionist" during her visit to Australia for the next leg of her much anticipated 'Witness' tour. Perry told 'The Project's' host Carrie Bickmore during an interview, "He's quite the exhibitionist and an adventure junkie" when Bickmore reminded her of Bloom's naked paddle boarding.
Bickmore said that it is nearly impossible for her to do paddle boarding without Bloom's naked buttock flashing in front of her eyes. Perry laughed and said, "Do you think we would have done that if we knew?" Bickmore said that Bloom pulled the stunt just to "give them a shot".
In 2016, the 41-year-old 'Lord of the Rings' actor was spotted kneeling completely naked on the back of a paddle board while the 33-year-old 'Firework' singer sat in front of him wearing a bikini. However, the pop-star stood by her boyfriend when the uncensored pictures were leaked, and according to a source who spoke to Hollywood Life, she has been extremely understanding of his anger and frustration. The source said, "She’s been a calming voice in his ear as he deals with the embarrassment of the situation." On the other hand, fans on social media had soon expressed their satisfaction with finally being able to see Bloom in his entirety.
However, this is not the first time that the pop star has spoken about her boyfriend's exposed pictures. In 2017, Perry revealed that Bloom is quite the game behind the closed doors of the bedroom. He had apparently asked her to strip down but she wasn't quite in the mood to do so.
The couple has been together since they first showed up at the 2016 Golden Globes bash. In fact, Perry reflected on the lessons that she had learned from her relationship with Bloom when she was honored in November 2016 by Hillary Clinton at the UNICEF Snowflake Ball in New York City. She told ET, “Everyone is a teacher in a relationship. That’s how I see it now... We’ve taught each other a lot.”
The couple faced a slight glitch in their romance in November 2016. A source informed InTouch Weekly, "Not long after Halloween, Orlando confessed to pals that he'd decided to end their relationship. He claimed that he's just not ready to get married and have babies."
However, Bloom soon made his love for Perry public when, in January 2017, he reportedly took her to Tokyo's Sanrio theme park to hang out with Hello Kitty. The couple seems to be much in love and will probably tie the knot soon as Bloom had recently replied to one of his Instagram stories saying that he would love to have a family of his own.
